Anxiety is a feeling that does not go away and can get worse over time. Symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. Our approach uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a highly effective therapy for mood disorders as it brings awareness to negative thought patterns and behaviors that keep us stuck in anxiety or depression. It helps clients create healthier mindsets, and offers practical strategies to overcome day-to-day challenges.
Anxiety can be normal in stressful situations such as public speaking or taking a test. Anxiety is only an indicator of underlying disease when feelings become excessive, all-consuming, and interfere with daily living. There are several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and various phobia-related disorders.
Anxiety can be treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medication. Our clinicians will work with you to find a personalized-approach to overcoming your anxiety.
